Creating Engaging Learning Experiences in MoodleResearch consistently has shown that traditional lecture methods, in which professors talk and students listen, dominate college and university classrooms. It is therefore important to know the nature of active learning, the empirical research on its use, the common obstacles and barriers that give rise to faculty members' resistance to interactive instructional techniques, and how faculty, faculty developers, administrators, and educational researchers can make real the promise of active learning. Surprisingly, educators' use of the term "active learning" has relied more on intuitive understanding than a common definition. Consequently, many faculty assert that all learning is inherently active and that students are therefore actively involved while listening to formal presentations in the classroom. Analysis of the research literature Chickering and Gamson , however, suggests that students must do more than just listen: They must read, write, discuss, or be engaged in solving problems. Most important, to be actively involved, students must engage in such higher-order thinking tasks as analysis, synthesis, and evaluation.

Active learning seems to be the new season's fashion in academia but many academics are left with questions which are largely unanswered. I've curated some resources which I hope will stimulate a discussion and possibly inspire you to take the plunge. How do we deliver active learning to our students? Technology should facilitate the interaction but mustn't drive it. Whilst purpose designed rooms undoubtedly facilitate active learning the lack of such space shouldn't form a barrier. I've been delivering flipped learning in standard seminar spaces. Students can be active in other ways.
